Radio company SiriusXM announced Friday that news anchor Dan Rather will join Radio Andy channel 102.
The veteran journalist will debut his weekly program Dan Rather’s America on Tuesday, September 27 at 10:00 a.m. ET. The one-hour show will broadcast from SiriusXM’s New York headquarters in Rockefeller Center.
Dan Rather’s America will debut the morning after the first presidential debate, and will feature fresh commentary and analysis of one of the most anticipated political events in recent American history.
On his weekly program, Rather will also talk with a regular rotation of top newsmakers about the political landscape and the big news stories of the day, and will also invite SiriusXM subscribers to call in and voice their opinions.
“I’m pinching myself that Dan has agreed to lend his iconic voice to my channel,” said Andy Cohen. “Now more than ever, I’m hungry to hear his thoughts and reflections about what’s going on in the world.”
Created by Andy Cohen, the Radio Andy channel includes shows that cross the spectrum from news to pop culture, with a stable of hosts ranging from Andy himself, to Sandra Bernhard, Bevy Smith, John Benjamin Hickey, Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen, Jonathan Alter, and more.
SiriusXM subscribers will also be able to listen to Dan Rather’s America via SiriusXM On Demand, through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online.
